AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Hope examines the stories of Lawson and Rudd and argues that Lawson's are the more universal because Rudd's fiction requires a greater understanding of his time and place. But Rudd was able to create universal comic characters, despite the presence of too much slap-stick comedy. Hope concludes that both writers deserve critical attention and should be accepted into the tradition of comic literature exemplified by Mark Twain.
